Time flys and not just when you are having fun

It has been a week since my Grandpa died, a very long but fast week.  I find it so hard to believe that he is gone, yet he is.  I guess with a death so sudden it takes awhile to wrap your mind around everything.  I am trying to keep my mind on the tasks ahead and keep myself from becoming to sad or overwhelmed at least for my children's sake.  My Grandpa would not want me to stay in a state of sadness he was a very jovial and fun person.
This morning we have a little school to do and then we go to our home school co op, we are taking Ruby Wife and new baby dinner this evening.  I tell you seeing a new baby makes me very happy!  Have I mentioned how much I love babies?  Oh, only about 18739847198374549 times here on this blog!
A blog friend emailed me yesterday with the news that she is finally pregnant!  I am just thrilled!  I want everyone to know that even though it has not happened yet for HD and I, I love hearing how God is blessing others!  Sometimes I feel like people don't want to tell me because they think I will be sad for myself.  It will be in his time.  I can see now that with the recent events in our life being pregnant would have been a bad thing....  God knows the time and he will bless us.
Tell me if I did a Saturday recipe Swap here would you all like to link up and share?  There used to be one and it stopped, I loved sharing recipes and so I thought I might start one up but only if you all want to play!  I don't like playing alone being a people person and all so let me know if you are interested.

I'll play the recipe game.

Also, I am very sorry for your loss. I lived with my grandma for a while; it was so very hard when she died. But as you know, we do not morn as those who have no hope.

Would love to do the recipe swap!
May not have enough to contribute, but would definately comment and get new ideas.

Hey, what ever happened to the family recipe book Carol was making?

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandpa. I realize I am late in offering my condolences, but I wanted you to know that your words about your family have been so touching.

I'm glad that you have had the support of your hubby, and that you had such wonderful hands-on grandparents!

And did I read you are trying to sell your house?

Hang in there!

Amy~ funny you should mention the family cook book... Carol opened a restaurant shortly after we all sent her our recipes and I am sure she is making my potato salad as we speak! I am just kidding, i don't know maybe we should ask!

Sorry to hear about your grandpa. And new babies sound like such fun! They always bring back such good memories.

Okay, I read this the other day while I was feeding the baby and meant to come back to comment. I forgot until just now when I started getting ready to make supper. I would love to do the recipe swap thing. Saturdays are a little crazy right now, but I would at least like to try.

Also, I thought I had been following closely but I did not know the whole selling the house thing. did I miss something?
